Defending champion Raptors lose Lowry, Ibaka to injuries

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Toronto Raptors say starting point guard Kyle Lowry fractured his left thumb and sixth-man Serge Ibaka a severely sprained an ankle against the New Orleans Pelicans. Lowry said he was hurt in the first quarter Friday night (Saturday, PHL time) when he tried to swipe the ball away from Pelicans center Derrick Favors on an offensive rebound. Lowry went to the bench after the initial injury, but returned a couple minutes later. He even made two 3-pointers in the second quarter before subbing out midway through the period and retreating to the locker room. “Originally, we thought it was something in the nail bed because the nail bed turned black and blue,” Lowry said. “We got some X-rays and we sent the X-rays off to the doctors, and there was a small fracture in the thumb.” Lowry said the injury is unrelated to the surgery he had in July to repair ligaments in the same thumb. Ibaka was in a walking boot after the game. He suffered his ankle sprain when he contested a layup by Brandon Ingram with about a minute remaining in the second quarter. Ibaka lay on the floor, writhing in pain as play continued, before a Toroo foul allowed two teammates to help him limp off the floor......»»

Dominican police arrest mastermind in David Ortiz shooting

By Martin Adames and Danica Coto, Associated Press SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Authorities in the Dominican Republic announced Friday that they have arrested the man behind the shooting of baseball great David Ortiz in an apparent case of mistaken identity. Police said Víctor Hugo Gómez was detained in the Caribbean country. No further details were immediately released. Authorities had said last week that they believed Gómez was living in the U.S. and described him as a dangerous fugitive, adding that he was an associate of Mexico's Gulf Cartel. He is accused of ordering the killing of his cousin, Sixto David Fernández. Authorities say hit men confused Ortiz with Fernández during the June 9 shooting at a bar in the capital of Santo Domingo. The two men are friends and were sharing a table. Carlos Rubio, Gómez's attorney, did not immediately return a message for comment. However, he posted a seven-minute video on YouTube on Friday in which his client talks about the case. "I would never do something like this," Gómez said, adding that he did not try to kill his cousin, "and least of all David, 'Big Papi.'" Gómez, who was wearing a gray T-shirt and a khaki cap, said he made the video because he fears for his life and wanted to reject the accusations as he called on police to investigate the case more deeply. "I want to clarify that I have nothing to do with any attempt on the life against Sixto David Fernández," he said. "We're family." Gómez then spent most of the video accusing Fernández of having ties to drug traffickers, saying that many people would back up his claims. Fernández did not return a message for comment. Authorities said at a recent press conference that Gómez wanted Fernández killed because he believed his cousin turned him into Dominican drug investigators in 2011. They said Gómez then spent time in prison in the Dominican Republic with one of at least 11 suspects arrested in the shooting. Gómez later resurfaced in the U.S. as one of dozens of suspects sought by federal authorities following a March 2019 drug trafficking sting in Houston. In the video, Gómez said he did not turn himself into U.S. authorities because he was not home at the time and because he could not afford a lawyer or post bond. Police had said Fernández received several threatening messages from Gómez prior to the shooting but did not provide a time frame. On Friday, authorities also announced the arrest of another suspect, Alberto Rodríguez Mota, who is accused of paying the hit men some $8,000. Police said he was captured off the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic en route to Puerto Rico. Meanwhile, Ortiz remained hospitalized in Boston and was expected to recover after doctors in the Dominican Republic removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine. Ortiz was moved out of intensive care nearly a week ago. __ Coto reported from San Juan, Puerto Rico......»»
